The 39-year-old says there's more to being a star than hitting high notes.

"The Voice is never going to be as big as X Factor because the concept is to get the voice and there's a million of them out there better than I will ever be," he told the Herald.

"However, I'm in one of the biggest bands in the world and the point of that is it's about entertainment, about visuals, how you look, how you act, how you are. The draw is not just the voice.

"The All-Ireland Talent Show was more suited to me because I like entertainment.

"I have a TV agent and I would never say no to anything that I thought was going to be a good experience, I love reality shows and stuff," he said.

"I'm a dude from Donaghmede and when things like Big Brother come up, of course I'm going to do it because who I am to say no? I'm not too big for my boots."
